    Some consoles many have a way to clear them with a command. Some don't.
    One silly technique is to write lots of blank lines to push the contents off the screen.
    A better way would be to change the program to use a GUI so you have complete control over what is displayed.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
